Scrap Metal Recycling in Australia

Australia has rich mineral sources, and mining represents 7.7 percent of the
country’s economy. A really massive part. However, virgin metal supplies are
finite. Some could have already peaked. And mining is becoming complex and
increasingly expensive in many ways, taking into account the increased water
intensity, increased tension over land use, and so on. Coupled with the
increasing demand for metals, there is an increasing need to consider
recycling the scrap metals.
Restrictions in Australia
The value of metals in end-of-life products in Australia is annually more than
AUD6 billion. But there are restrictions in Australia’s metal recycling industry.
Not Economically Viable
In Australia, there has been less pressure to recycle. In many cases, people
are losing the infrastructure to recycle metals locally. Waste metals are
Australia’s main waste exports.
Even things like steel cans are being exported because of the inability to
recycle. And there are no enough people to support big recycling efforts.
Recycling of metals is just not economically viable in Australia.
Lack of Legislative
Referring to metal recycling, other countries goes much further than Australia,
which is largely down to legislation.The EU, Japan and Korea all have
legislation for the recycling of metals, yet Australia has not taken it on board.
Although it currently offers tax breaks and concessions to mining companies,
measures to recover those metals are lacking.
Australia should pay more attention to confront these issues. It need to shift
attitudes and recycle scrap metal at an increased rate.
Metal Recycling Machines
1. Metal crusher is mainly used for metal can crushing and is also widely used
for crushing bicycles, car bodies, refrigerators, etc. It can crush any metals into
small granulars. The crusher is suitable for steel mills, metal recycling
companies and metal smelters.
2. Hydraulic metal baler is another equipment for recycling metals. It can press
scrap metals into cuboid type, cylinder type and octangle type. There are more
than 20 models for you to choose.
